Were you even Jake back then? I seem to vaguely remember that you changed your Username, but I could easily be wrong. I found my "welcome" note a while back as well. It's amazing that some of this stuff is still around.
I first came here because I was looking for some Christian Jokes to use in Sunday School. It's amazing at how much the atmosphere has changed. I was only "not a moderator" for a week, so I literally don't remember a time when I wasn't enforcing rules.
